  •  do you still think that? (5+ / 0-)
    - that they go to die, I mean?

    I must admit I never thought that. The way I saw them, as depicted, was as people who were willing to step into the unknown, knowing that they would not ever have 'perfect happiness', but it neither would be bought for with another's total misery.

    For me, the ones who walk realise that no happiness is perfect and unending - nor should it be. I think they go to seek or create a create a world where imperfection and responsibility create a place of true contentment.
